A small gift of comfort for children taken into temporary custody due to trauma, violence or domestic disputes, used by The Houston County Sheriff’s Department, DFACS, and other similar associates.

A HUGG Kit includes:

  • Personal blanket,
  • hygiene supplies such as tooth brushes, tooth paste, combs or brushes, socks, shampoo, deodorant, a washcloth, Kleenex and hand sanitizer.
  • Fun stuff may be a small book, stickers, pencils and coloring book.

The challenge for us is that it must all fit into a one-gallon zip-lock bag. The bags have a blank label on the outside so that the officer/social worker can write child’s name on it, for their unique ownership.  

​To participate, find Deitra Alford, or ask your Pastor at church. We'll be glad to help you get started!

​Look for more information, like suggestions and help in packing a bag, on this site...coming soon...
